Go ahead and try to shop here and leave empty-handed. Co-owners Jennifer Branham, Carmen Ellis, and Angie Regan—all moms with school-aged kids—met as vendors at the first incarnation of this impossibly fun store when it was in NoDa. Now, after a 2012 move to South End, they work with 40-plus Charlotte-area artists and artisans. The trio encourages partners to supply Charlotte-themed gifts. Jewelry, art prints, North Carolina pride handbags, hand-crafted barware, one-of-a-kind clothing—it’s all here, and it’s all local.
